"I''m leaving."

Dad''s words come as a complete shock to Essie. How can he just walk out on her and the family, especially when Mom is pregnant?

Essie keeps her dad''s leaving a secret. Then Essie''s classmate, Chris Crow, disappears, and everyone finds out he''s been kidnapped. Is Chris okay? Is Dad ever coming back? Essie is left to wonder if people really have any control over what happens in their lives.

Finally, after a startling incident with a family friend, Essie finds the strength to hold on tight to all that she has left -- and in the process realizes that the bonds of love and family do hold a person together.

Inspired by true events, Hold Me Tight is a moving and powerful novel. An author''s note provides further information about kidnapping and the Amber Plan programs that are in use today to help communities find abducted children.
